Today was a very momentous day. We heard your heart beat. This is the same heartbeat that will be pumping strong for the next century! It was an unbelievable sound. What was equally as amazing was that you were like a beautiful lightening bug blinking with every beat. Your heart at only 6 weeks beats at 119 bpm.
Everyday we are telling more people about you and every day more and more are asking questions about your growth. We can tell this week was a big one for growing. (you have eye buds, and ear buds, your arms and legs are budding out and your brain, bones, lungs and intestines are all taking shape. You even have blood pumping through your body). Mom has been really tired and giving you all the naps you need. You also seem to love Cherrios and cucumbers, because it is one of the only things Mommy can eat and feel okay at the moment.
You are doing so well that the doctor said we don’t have to come back for 2 weeks. We told her she has the best job in the world because she gets to share such special moments with new Mom’s and Dads.
We love you and keep pumpin strong.
